Hi, My 6 cylinder auto is surging when i back off at between 80 and 100 klms.Have had harmonic balancer replacedthis week also computer checked at Action Ford Dealership (no codes all good) and throttle body and idle sensor cleaned.Also I replaced dizzy cap,rotor and leads. But surging is still there.Any ideas would be great.

I put in new plugs as well. Went to change the fuel filter the other night and found that some one has cut the fuel line either side of the fuel filter and put in a generic brand filter joined up by 2 little hoses. :?: :?: After Easter I will go to the good guys at Little's Wrecking and get another fuel line from front to rear and replace it.Also a new genuine fuel filter.

Na what I mean is what colour were they when you pulled them out and now that you have mentioned it, what gap did you gap your new plugs to?

The plugs were a pale sort of grey and the new ones gaps are set to 1.1

Jaysen, I replaced the fuel line from the tank to the motor and installed a new filter.Went for a long drive last night and no surging.I found out that if a mechanic stuffs up the fuel line ( twisting) when they are changing the fuel filter ,they just cut off the ends and add 2 little hoses to join the fuel filter.Bodgy but a quick fix.Anyway it has solved the problem .Thanks. :D
